§ MR. FFRENCH
I beg to ask the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that a telegraph is badly needed in the village of Duncormack, as it is in close proximity to a railway station and has a petty sessions court and police barrack, with several extensive business houses; and whether, as the nearest telegraph office is three or four miles away, he will meet the wishes of the people of this village by giving them a telegraph office.
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
I am sorry to say that the probable amount of telegraph business at Duncormack is not sufficient to warrant the extension of the telegraph system to that place except under guarantee. Terms for an extension under guarantee have been twice offered, viz., in 1901 and in 1906, and I am having inquiry made with a view of ascertaining whether the terms offered on the last occasion can still be quoted.
